Wj Biggest tire, Smallest lift...

Hey guys, I wanna see some pictures of the smallest lift with some big *** tires on the WJ. I remember a Jeep called "Lower 40" or something like that, was a Wrangler on 40" tires with no lift. They said it was the most expensive way to put 40's on your jeep. I don't want 40's but I do want to put a big *** tire, I don't mind cutting up my jeep. So let's see what you guys have done, any 35" tires on a BB out there, or a 3" lift with 38's or something? I think it would look really good with minimal lift and really big tires.

ive seen someone on here say they had 34's on 3.5'' lift accomplished by cutting out the wheel wells (i havnt seen the pics though to say what it looks slike)...but if your willing to cut enough you could get some pretty good size tires on a small lift

By "almost rub" what do you mean? Like hitting something cuttable? Cause that's what I'm saying, if you can cut it and fit something bigger I wanna see it.

You gotta admit the Lower 40 is pretty sweet looking.

Now I realize 40" tires are a little extreme for a WJ. Would it even be possible to do something similar?

its definately badass....and i wont say it cant be done with a WJ but it would take a ridiculous amount of work and money...id say something like A 3'' LIFT WITH 35's would be an obtainable goal....dont know if you would be able to keep it street leagl but its a cool idea imo

I think it would easily possible with either Iceland or Bushwacker flares.

That's what I was thinking. Even something custom made. I guess it would depend on what the actual limits are until you start cutting into something structural. I can't see it costing more than a 6" long arm lift, and you'd still have to do lots of trimming. Might as well keep the center of gravity low and chop, cut, rebuild. I also realize wheel travel will be reduced without a lift, but I think the cool factor would out weigh that.

You would have significantly limited uptravel. I wheel with 35's and 5" lift and have heavily trimmed fenders, metal, etc.. and bumpstopped to do so from a functional standpoint. The interior of the wheelwell is the real limiting point.

If, however, you're main consideration is the "cool factor" and not function, then the sky's the limit.

yes...to make a rig like the lower 40 your suspention system will have to be based on max downtravel because you can see even on the lower 40 jk how limited its up travel would be before he gets into those insanely high flares

Im sure you havent done much research on here before regardign WJ's.

You can fit 38"s on a 3" lift if there are loaded on to a trailer that the WJ is pulling. You want 40's stock...try the nearest liquor store.

I think it will look chopped up if you try and fit 38's or 40's on such a small lift...i suppose you cold always tube it.

Yeah and with the added ground clearance of taller tires maybe a 3 or 4" lift would be all you'd need to get some good wheeling done.

This is my goal anyway, I just wanna see some pictures of guys that have done it before. Bigass tires minimal lift.

I never said I want 40's with no lift, that's insane. I said biggest tires possible with the smallest lift possible. 2" or 3" lift and 35's or bigger.
